Full biography of Dominic Alldis

Dominic Alldis’ Background

As founder and CEO of Music & Management, Steinway Artist and RAM, Professor Dominic Alldis combines decades of experience as an international musician with 15 years of facilitating innovative learning experiences for business using the metaphor of music.

Dominic is a multi-talented and versatile musician and performer, equally at home conducting symphony orchestras, improvising at the piano with bands and teaching students in the world’s finest conservatories. He moves freely between contrasting musical worlds and combines a prestigious classical music heritage with extensive experience as a jazz band-leader and improviser.

As an artist exploring the synergy between different musical cultures, Dominic is uniquely placed to bring his insights to the contemporary business world, with its need to maintain the ‘classical’ values of excellence and teamwork, while fostering the ‘jazz’ values of adaptability, disruption and innovation.

As a keynote speaker, Dominic has worked with many of the world’s leading companies and business schools to create powerful musical experiences for executives. These events explore a range of key business concerns: leadership, collaboration, creativity and innovation, listening, decision-making, talent-management and the pursuit of excellence.

His thought-provoking and transformative presentations often feature live musicians, ranging from large symphony orchestras to more intimate string quartets and jazz bands, depending on the size and key themes of the event.
